    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great and the people that work there are nice. There is room to grow and experience different lines of business. They also provide tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Pay is not great compared to other banks and credit unions. Management micromanages like crazy. There is a report for absolutely everything and your managers will "go over" your results daily as to how poorly you are meeting objectives or how you can improve if you are meeting objectives. Wells Fargo keeps restructuring so upper level management changes constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Lay off the micromanagement. Let people take care of their customers and stop trying their hands. Sales and growth will come if you let your front line employees get to know their customers and their needs.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure it would make a difference. They seem lost in what direction. Talk about culture change has resulted in no culture focus. Clean up at all levels not just senior management.
